Transformation Project Manager: Spring 2024 Virtual Lecture Series presented by Project Management

17 APR 6PM – 1 MAY 7PM ET
Transformation Project Manager Spring 2024

RSVP

The Master's in Project Management program at Georgetown School of Continuing Studies is charging ahead with a full slate of virtual lectures this spring semester with the theme “The Transformation Project Manager.” The pace of digital transformation reshaping business has significantly accelerated, requiring the adoption of new ways of thinking, new ways of working, and new technologies. As the project manager role is one of the most highly sought-after resources for transformation projects, organizations need to empower their leaders and teams to create a culture that supports transformation, future growth, and success. Transformation project managers enable people-centered transformations through projects and strategy.

The purpose of the Virtual Lecture Series is to share with our students, alumni and community members the vast and interesting knowledge of our faculty and program partners. The series may include, but is not limited to, a traditional lecture, demonstration, best practice presentation, or interactive activity. Each lecture is free and open to the public.

Apply SAFe Flow Metrics to Drive the Culture of Continuous Learning

Wednesday, May 1, 6:00 - 7:00 p.m. ET

Presenter: Saya Sone

This session emphasizes the importance of flow metrics to foster a culture of continuous learning and improvement. We will learn how to apply the Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe) Flow Metrics to Drive the Culture of Continuous Learning to achieve business agility. The SAFe 6.0 introduces flow metrics: Flow distribution, Flow Predictability, Flow time, Flow velocity, Flow Efficiency, and Flow Load. Dr. Saya implements SAFe flow metrics and will share with participants how she coaches organizations to achieve better predictability, efficiency, and transparency in their Agile and Lean practices. She established a learning organization, Octo University, and will share how she applied flow metrics to drive the culture of continuous learning to achieve business agility. Participants will leave with a better understanding of the significance of flow metrics in Agile and SAFe, their role in fostering a culture of continuous learning, and the practical steps organizations take to implement and leverage these concepts for improved efficiency, predictability, and customer satisfaction.
